Pink tourmaline in its rough state.
Pink tourmaline has played and intriguing part in royal history. The deep rich pink/red colour of tourmaline had many people fooled. Back in 1926 Cesar’s “Ruby” necklace was part in the Russian crown jewels. However later that year a professor made a breath-taking discovery! The “ruby” necklace was in fact rubelite (red tourmaline).
As well as the October birthstone tourmaline is used to commemorate an 8th wedding anniversary.
Tourmaline can be found in an array of colours, from rich reds, deep blues and even green! An extremely rare form of tourmaline is the Pariba tourmaline, found in Brazil. The richness in colour of the Pariba tourmaline displays similarities to a blue sapphire.
FACT: Tourmaline comes from toramalli, which means “mixed gems” in Sinhala, one of the languages of Sri Lanka.
